Sleepless nights ............Crafty makes .......

Hi Peeps
Well I don't know about you lot but my sleeping at night has been rubbish.... hot.... cold....itchy feet's.... snoring husband........ cat on my head ........ ha ha ha still at least I have something to do to while away the hours ... so here's last night batch

I've seen a few of these card boxes around and so had a go last night .not my usual kind of thing but im brewing an idea for a steampunky one !..... I kinda cheated and used double sided card stock but I'm happy with the results for a first go

Stuff I used
Tim Holtz 12x12 Lost and Found
Tattered Floral dies - Sizzlet strip and movers & shapers
Vintage Photo DI
Woodware lace edge die
Tonic Flourish die

I've been meaning to enter a few challenges but I always forget... oops ha ha
This card was made for The Left of Centre Challenge....
its more grungy than 'dark' I suppose,
but it fits the theme of Favourite Book  .......... can you guess ? 

Stuff  I've used
Stampotique - Daniels Hearts & Prom Queen
Chicken wire stencil
White acrylic paint
Distress inks - Spun Sugar, Tattered rose, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Sentiment printed off PC

One of my fave books is Steven Kings Fire Starter lol .......... is that a bit too tenuous hee hee
